She has performed at pre-k and elementary schools, churches, museums, colleges, festivals and countless other venues from rural communities on the Eastern Shores of Maryland to the townships of Cape Town South Africa to the coastal communities of Ghana, West Africa. In 2014 Muriel was also a featured teller at the renowned Sierra Storytelling Festival in California, in 2017 she had the distinguished honor of emceeing the festival.
